Customer Question

I am a bartender and was harrassed by a member of the V.F.W. No one would make it stop so I put in 2 week notice. 48 hours later I changed my mind and decided to try other course and withdrew my resignation. Do they have the right not to except it.

Good morning,

I'm sorry to hear of the situation.

An employer always has the right to immediately accept the resignation of an employee and not to allow that resignation to be rescinded by the employee.

Unfortunately, that is the case in your situation as well. Had you been harassed by a co-employee, as opposed to a customer/member, you would be entitled to more protection under CA law, but an employer has no legal duty to take steps to prevent a customer from harassing an employee---even if the harassment revolves around the employee's Ethnicity, Color, Religion, National Origin, Age, Sex or Disability. I'm sorry.

I wish you the best in 2012.
